The NVTO is sad to announce that Sifu Alex McCarrier passed away at the age of 45 in Lakewood, Colorado. Alex started at the Austin Ving Tsun Academy in 1999 and through countless hours of classes, seminars, and private instruction rose to the rank of 3rd degree. He was always positive, upbeat, and well-liked by his classmates. Our prayers and condolences go to Ms. Shannon Teer and his family. 😔🙏🏻

There is a saying in Wing Chun which goes:

"Don't speak of who is junior or senior, the one who achieves skill first is the senior."

Truthfully, it is not uncommon that a newer student joins a school and due to his own hard work and diligence, surpasses many of his classmates who don't practice as much or as often. After all, skill in the martial arts isn't about calendar time, it's about training time. The secret is how many more repetitions you have done than the student next to you, not how much longer you've been enrolled in the school than him.

"The best approach to learning is to assume the demeanor of a total beginner. Not only will this speed up the learning process, it will put one into the proper mindset of being open to new ideas, respectful of the teacher, and attentive to detail. Holding a true "Empty Cup" mindset allows students to more easily learn new knowledge without being hindered by old knowledge, attitudes, and beliefs."
